60th anniversay commission

Good afternoon everyone, I am very late today, been doing a little bit of Spring cl*****g ugh!
I hope you are all well or at least better than you were {{{{{hugs}}}}}

What a glorious morning it has been here in the Midlands, then the sun went in and suddenly it was hailing!!!!! Now, the sun can't make up it's mind.

For my card today, I was sent very dark and dismal photograph so the first thing was to get it cleaned up and relieved of the background which was too dark to lighten up enough. The criteria were it must be plain and simple and it had to look like a photograph in a frame, I think I achieved that, and the customer was very happy with it :o)

Photograph and words printed in MS Word onto Papermania textured card, then layered onto black PM card then pewter textured card from PDA and on to the base card which is also PM textured card folded and cut to 7x5.

I think the dark background that remains is a great little feature. It highlights the couple a treat Jack. Smashing card and I'm not at all surprised the customer loved it!
